mt. vernon love story by mary higgins clark. and she said that -- that no one ever called martha washington martha. she was always called patsy as lady bird johnson was never called claudia. so i was just wondering, you mentioned in his letters when he referred to her in his letter that it was just mentioned on the telephone that he did call her patsy. and i also wanted to mention that in the story that i'm reading about martha and george washington that the house, mt. vernon, was originally the home of his half brother, george washington's half brother. that he lived in a smaller farm. and i wondered if you are going to talk anything about his years as a surveyor or is this really about the years with martha as an adult? >> thank versus much. this is actually martha washington's time in the sun. so we won't talk about george's early career. what about the nickname patsy? >> patsy, pat, patty were the nicknames for martha in those days just as peg or peggy is a nickname for margaret. the martha nickname has fallen out of favor. nobody was named patricia back then. the only patsie

on the washington post website and martha burke, the money editor of ms. magazine and producer and host of "equal time with martha burke." you look too young to have been there. lynn, i want to ask you what did being there on that important day 50 years ago mean to you as an african-american woman? >> on that day 50 years ago, it was just the most amazing experience i'd ever had in my 16 years. you have to look at it in retrospect, we sometimes see things that you didn't see then, and you have to remember that at the point the people converged on washington, we as a community were off of a very hard fought battle in birmingham, in albany george. >>, in mississippi, in alabama, people were struggling to have the right to citizenship, the right to vote, the right to public accommodations. people were being jailed and this was a culmination of those efforts to come to washington and petition the federal government to intervene and insure that in fact all citizens have equal treatment. >> annie, you were there, too, 50 years ago. again, you were there today for the march today. how did being there in

of the early national government of the united states. >> last week in the martha washington program, we learned with great sorrow martha washington burned all of her papers, her letters, her correspondence with her husband george. only two of them remained. we have just the opposite here. thousands and thousands of them. explain the scope of the trove of materials that you have to work with as scholars through the writings of the adams family. >> the adams family gave to the massachusetts historical society a collection. we have never counted them individually, but probably 70,000+ documents over several generations, and probably about 300,000 pages. for abigail and john, which is the most important of the collection, there are about 1,170 letters they exchanged over the years. >> how frequently did they write to one another? >> it depended. when they were together -- for example, we do not have any letters after 1801 because after john leaves the white house, they're together almost all the time. for periods, for example, when there is fairly regular mail delivery between massachussett
, not in the south of france, but in martha's vineyard and that has triggered the expected criticism from corners of capitol hill. of course who are the middle of a five-week vacation. "usa today" is reporting the first family is going to be staying at the $7 million home of a top democratic donor and, of course, bill clinton also vacationed in martha's vineyard during his time in the white house but he famously and i know that gene will remember this and ed will remember this, he famously switched his vacation destination after dick morris took polls to see which vacation spots would be better and they found out that wyoming, surprisingly enough, is better than martha's vineyard. nantucket is better than martha's vineyard but i don't think you'll find that in the poll. "usa today" is remibdsing us this morning franklin roosevelt was criticized for spending time on his yacht. john adams spent seven months in quincy, massachusetts, on his farm in 1797 and actually accused of abdicating his office and that criticism didn't help his bid for the second term. now, for republicans who are ready to poun

more. he's on martha's vineyard, that's where the president is because he's on vacation. dan, everybody has been waiting for the president to come out and say something about egypt and they're all wondering one thing. will the president finally say that what's happened in egypt was a coup? >> well, you know, it's unclear whether the president will go that far. the white house is saying a determination was made that it should not be called a coup in the interest of the united states. but as you pointed out, he will be hearing from the president for the first time on this issue. the white house saying that the president will make a statement to the pool cameras at 10:15. now, that will be tape, it will not be live. a few minutes after that before we get a chance to see that videotape to hear exactly what the remarks are from the president. so far the face on this story for the administration has been secretary of state john kerry. yesterday, he held a briefing with reporters. that's when he condemned the violence in egypt. talked about the need for restraint for the egyptian interim gover

white house correspondent kristin welker with the vacationing president on martha's vineyard. >> reporter: president obama on the golf course during his first full day of vacation with cameras capturing a moment of frustration. back in washington, his foreign policy frustrations played out on the sunday talk shows. while republicans have generally backed mr. obama's surveillance programs, they've also said he's been too soft on russia and accused nsa leaker edward snowden. >> mr. snowden's being granted asylum in russia is a signal of incredibly bad relations between the united states and russia. and mr. putin putting his thumb right in america's eye. >> reporter: senator john mccain argued that the president underestimated his russian counterpart. >> and i know they like to focus on body language, and he's got that kind of slouch looking like the bored kid in the back of the classroom. >> the president comparing him to the kid in the back of the classroom, i think is very indicative of his lack of appreciation of who vladimir putin is. >> reporter: and renewed debate today a
on the snowden controversy we turn to major garrett on martha's vineyard where the president is wrapping up the first full day of his vacation. major, what does the white house make of this? >> well, the president's spokespeople have told me, jeff that they don't believe the president said anything inflammatory to poison the well on a potential snowden trial. they say the same thing is true of the justice department. they have no control with members-- what members of congress may say about this case. they also say the evidence is clear, at least from their perspective that felonies were committed here and edward snowden if he comes back to the united states will receive a fair trial. the other grievances aired by the snowed enfamily that the president's whistle-blower protections weren't sufficient, the white house says they're the first ones ever put in place by a president of the united staelingts and should have been tested before edward snowden released these classified documents outside of the system. so those two key elements are what the white house says can be done and should have
